The Capacity Building Initiative provides support to health-focused nonprofit organizations for organizational improvement projects. It currently is accepting applications. You can view the Request for Proposal here.
The Capacity Building Initiative uses a one-stage application process that consists of submitting a full application. An applicant does not need to submit a Letter of Inquiry. A potential applicant should review the Criteria to ensure that your organization meets the Pallottine Foundation of Huntington’s basic eligibility requirements.
